Acupressure Treatments

Founded on the same theory as Chinese acupuncture, acupressure involves pressure applied at specific points on the body, mostly (but not limited to) the area of discomfort. Unlike acupuncture, there are no needles involved, just pressure applied by hand. Many musculo-skeletal problems such as back and neck pain can be treated effectively using acupressure.

One of the staff physicians in the SHC is an experienced acupressurist. Please call 475-2255 (V/TTY) to schedule an appointment for an evaluation.
